What You'll Get


Now that brave explorers have trekked through Antarctica, Santa Claus’s North Pole warehouse, and Gary Busey’s garage, scientists can confirm that space is the final frontier, Travel beyond Earth's atmosphere today’s Groupon: for $6, you get two tickets to a planetarium show at the Whitworth Ferguson Planetarium (up to a $12 value). Shows are typically held on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons at varying times; attendees must use the Iroquois Drive entrance.

Since opening its star-dappled doors in 1964, the Whitworth Ferguson Planetarium has delighted sky-gazing enthusiasts through effulgent re-creations of the night sky and educational journeys through the solar system with its 24-foot-diameter dome, capable of illuminating 4,000 stars. Upcoming celestial explorations include Jewels of the Shortest Nights (August 5–September 3), which examines distant objects that are prominent in a midsummer-night sky, such as star clusters, nebulae, and overzealous boomerang throws. The vivid Jupiter and Saturn: Giants of the Solar System (September 9–October 1) dazzles eyes with newly captured images and chronicles the recent discoveries regarding the solar system's largest planets and their moons. Dragons in the Sky (October 6–October 29) guides sojourners on an enchanting quest to illuminate the dragon lore hidden in the stars.
